News report that two horses are dead after receiving compounded drug.

The Lexington, Ky., news from Channel 18 reports that a compounding pharmacy is under fire for the deaths of two horses in Florida, allegedly due to the pharmacy's compounded drug for EPM. Six more horses are ill but expected to recover.

The compounding pharmacy is Wickliffe, located in Lexington, Ky.

The FDA is investigating, as it's not proven if the drug itself was bad or if it was administered improperly by farm staff.

We have warned readers many times over the years about our concerns about compounded drugs and compounding pharmacies.
